As you know, Pynk is built on the foundation of reducing bias. So it’s important that the team and crowd are equally diverse. During our research to help us get better at this, we found out some shocking facts about the underrepresentation of women in the financial world. We think this needs to change.
But the question is: How?
We started by creating a short animated clip that shows just a few of the shocking truths behind women’s representation in investing and finance.
Ultimately, we’d like to start supporting some charities that help women and young girls who are facing financial hardship, or support them towards working in our industry.
So, here are our questions for the great Pynk think tank!
- What do you think of the video? Bearing in mind the subject matter, do you feel it deals with the subject sensitively, whilst highlighting the issue?
- What do you think are the best ways that we can promote and instill a fully diversified work force?
- Do you think supporting the issue of helping women facing financial hardship is a just cause for us? Is there a reason you think we shouldn’t champion this cause?
We’d be delighted to hear what our community thinks - feel free to be brutally honest. Together we can try make a difference
